Manali Leh road by foot? You must be wondering whether we are joking. No, we just finished Great Himalayan Running Festival and we were fortunate to experience Himalayas from the close quarters. The 2019 edition is from 15-23 June. Check details here http://www.thehellrace.com/the-high-5s/
We did Manali Leh road trip way back in 2010. The roads were bad and at many places non-existent. When we read about GHRF we jumped at the opportunity of running on this road. The concept was unique and we loved it. We opted for 14 KMs. This was the first edition and it was a mind-blowing experience. The support from the organisers was great which enhanced our tete a tete with Himalayas. We shall be writing more about this later in detail.
In the meantime, we will leave you with some lovely pictures of Manali Leh road captured during the run.
Please click on the pictures to see them in original size.
This was something we never imagined we would do. It was a test for physical and mental endurance. It was a fantastic experience of running/walking amidst Himalayas! We shall be back with details soon. For more on the event, you can check details on the website of GHRF given above.
